Been going here for years always great food and in my opinion best fried food in town. Great view of the ocean and the harbor seals are always in this area as well. I always get the chowder and clam strips but I have tried a lot of the other stuff on the menu. Also they ship lobsters which is very convenient if you are traveling and want to bring a taste of Maine home. Overall great place!

Now this is what New England Clam Chowder should taste like. DELICIOUS. Not too thick, just the right consistency with tons of flavor, potatoes and clams. It warmed my heart. This family owned restaurant offers lovely service, a beautiful view right on Wells Beach, another winning lobster roll, clams, scallops, salmon, shrimp and more. All reasonably priced. They offer carry-out and even better, they'll ship seafood for you, including the wonderful clam chowder. It's about as local as it gets. Go!

We arrived at this place by chance, primarly looking for the shore. This good looking place was attractive for a quick lunch. Good service, great view, excellent food. We enjoyed all the most that it was not scheduled. We rented two kayaks after the meal, for a nice tour in the bay. Definitively a great place where to go.

Excellent bang for your buck!

The family atmosphere is amazing you can pick your own lobster and they can also cook & "crakem'" on site. They have a huge variety of seafood.

You also cannot beat those views!!!!

We ordered the Baked Haddock & Baked Scallops. Both were outstanding. Clam Chowder was excellent as well.
